The ABCs of Joy - K is for Kindness, Kisses, and Kids. Today's joy challenge is to do a random act of kindness for someone. Smile as you pass by, hold the door open, or say a kind word to someone are small gestures that can go a long way towards making both you and the other person feel good. Also, shout out to @kindnesswarrior who inspire kindness through their locally made clothing. Other joyful K things: ♡ Kisses. Whether it's a romantic kiss or a pet kiss, they add to your joy. ♡ Kids. They embody pure, unadulterated joy. Hang out with them, observe them, watch videos of them - and learn from them! 🌈The goal of this 26 day challenge is to bring more joy into our daily lives. This, in turn, helps bring us more abundance and success. Each day of the challenge we'll get creative with finding things that inspire joy that start with a letter of the alphabet. There will be a live video every day so be sure to watch! And please share your daily ideas with me by tagging me or #theabcsofjoy. ps - did you know that this month I'm offering free 30-minute online Inspire Joy! coaching sessions?

L O N D O N ❤️ ••• Another spontaneous solo trip is in the books! First time in London was a total success and I will definitely be back. 48 hours was not nearly enough time! Looking for things to do in London. Here are some of my favorites: 1. London Eye: if it’s a beautiful day out you won’t want to miss this super touristy but well worth it spot to see the city from a birds eye view. I also went on the London eye river cruise that I really enjoyed! 2. Go to a Show: I went to @wicked_musical It was my third time seeing it (previously Atlanta and Nashville) and it was the best one yet. But there are so many options, you can’t go wrong! 3. Afternoon Tea at Ham Yard Hotel: when in London am I right?! What’s the tea you might ask?! Wanna feel extra Bad and boujee...head over to Piccadilly Circus and enjoy this quaint spot. 4. Café Hop: I went to @elan_cafe (multiple locations), @saintaymes and @peggyporschenofficialand I was totally obsessed with all things pink (duh), flower walls, desserts, coffee etc. 5. @Boroughmarket : Think Pike Place Market vibe but different. I enjoyed the most delicious home made pumpkin and ricotta Tortellini with mix pesto and tomato sauce! You won’t want to miss this market! — Update: London just made it to the top of my list of favorite cities in Europe along with Prague! 😍 Have y’all been to London?! What are your favorite London spots??

When Giselle took her first few steps with her gait trainer, Vienna screamed with excitement. When Giselle drank from a straw for the first time at Chick-fil-A, Vienna joined me in doing a happy dance regardless of it being super packed. When Giselle let go of my hand and took 8 steps towards her for the first time, Vienna almost fell over with excitement. .......... This right here is the treasure - the part of the story they don’t tell you when they talk about the diagnosis. The part that seems so contradictory to what they prepare you for. It’s the uncontainable joy that comes when the lives of those around you are dramatically changed for the better because of the life that is lived differently. ........ We are all better because of Giselle. ......... She has taught us so many things and we see and experience life so differently because of her. There is so much to be grateful for, including the bond these two have. Their sisterhood runs deep and one of my greatest joys is to see Vienna have her little sister’s back every step of the way ✨

I went back to the gym today after a long over 2 week break. While I was only able to get through 30 minutes of the hot yoga class it got me thinking about perspective. . . A few months ago I was in a bad place emotionally and just always mad and frustrated at what I saw as my limitations and circumstances, and truthfully I still have some of those days but the thing that has changed over the last few months is how I choose to view everything. I can either get frustrated that I ONLY made it through half or congratulate myself I ACTUALLY made it through half. It is much easier to be joyful and grateful in even the worst circumstances when we choose joy. . Harvard has even done studies on the Happiest people and the one thing they have in common is they are the most grateful and thankful people. . “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 . When God calls us to be thankful in all circumstances it is for our joy and happiness , and honestly when I started thanking God more for even the worst days I became so much more joyful! Now do I still had bad days where I wallow a bit, yes I am 💯 human, but I am choosing to remain thankful. . Today I am thankful for my parents for coming and cleaning the house for me, I am thankful for half a yoga class, sweet talks with Godly women and even high pain today because I have had a lot of lower pain days preceding today. . . What can you choose to give thanks for today?? . . . . . . . . #choosejoy #joy #perspective #myfitnessjourney #myhealthjourney #healthyish #fitfamily #workout #lupuswarrior #lupus #chronicpain #chronicillness #fibromyalgia #rhuematoidarthritis #zyiaactive #momlife #fitmoms #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #fitnessjourney #keeppushing #keeppushingforward #godisgood #yoga #butyouseemsohealthy #lupusblogger #momblogger #reallife

Two weeks old today and that means we’re allowed to walk around the neighborhood! • Harper loves movement, whether that’s in our arms, the car, or the stroller! We love learning things about this precious child. She’s a snuggler, loud noises don’t bother her one bit, and she loves to kick and punch. She is perfect.

*an example of how i set my #intentions * I ask the Universe to continue guiding me and to continue to push me forward from past situations that no longer serve my greater good, to plz remove the situations that i have been trying to resuscitate -time and time- again, expending endless energy on but continually ending up with the same results. I welcome the new and the challenges it may bring and i relax into the new with an open mind and open heart even if it scares me. i know ya got me gurrrrl ✨love, dayna. . If ya don’t ask, ya don’t get. 🙏🏽 in the astro world, shit is seriously weird rn. question: can you think of something you’ve been clinging to with a death grip? A job, a person, a thing ? We have all been clinging to an old situation or concept or state of mind. We keep revisiting these things thinking if we fix one thing that we can get it to work. News flash - it is not working. why are we continually trying to go back to what hasn’t been working? another question: think back to what was going on in your life during may - august of 2018? yeah in the astro world the sky is in a very similar position but this time around we can either choose to move forward or do you want to sink back into 2018 energies. was that time a volatile emotion rollercoaster or an extremely emotionally abundant time for you? is that where you wanna be ? bc it’s gunna be a no from me dawg. this time around i own my worth*. so it’s time to move forward. the big take home here is stop trying to continually bring dead things back to life. leave the past behind. move forward and start building with the new energy that’s coming in. It’s time to ascend to a higher self. if ya feel me, then ya feel it. if ya don’t then this probably all sounds ridiculous 🤷🏽‍♀️💕✨🧘🏽‍♀️ it’s all up to you, do you wanna replay the past and remain in a turbulent shit ass energy suck ? or choose the new world energies and surrender to the higher vibrations and relax with ease into your purpose?✨✨✨❤️ . . #meditate #yoga #rant #astrology #numerology #choosejoy #soulpurpose #energyreading #deep #yogapants #thoughts #vibes #higherconsciousness #spiritualawakening #spirituality #ascension #levelup #blog #blogger #writers

I honestly thought this baby was coming out in May (!!) but we worked hard & FAST and Valentine’s Day 2019 was my first book’s official birthday! Given this surprise early delivery, I haven’t yet mapped out an official launch strategy beyond sharing this fun news on my social media channels and asking you to buy & read it. E-book coming next week.

Questa sera io e @valentina_dispari siamo andate a vedere #LeNottiBianche di #Dostoevskij al @teatroghione. Uno degli spettacoli più belli che abbia mai visto... inchiodata alla poltrona, ipnotizzata dall’inizio alla fine dalla scenografia, dalle luci di scena, dalla bravura degli attori... sono uscita dalla sala con la bellezza negli occhi e nel cuore. Andare a fare i complimenti agli attori e al regista era il minimo che potessimo fare per ringraziare di tanta bellezza... APPUNTO...mi ero ripromessa di restare professionale, ma alla fine “ero stata brava” già un’altra volta... stavolta la foto me la meritavo!!! ❤️📸 • • • • • • • • • • • #amazing #smile #smiling #smiles #beautifulsmile #happiness #happy #instagood #instasmile #instahappy #happiness #fangirl #solocosebelle #top_portraits   #dreamcatcher    #dreamshoot    #actor #dreamer #giorgiomarchesi #camilladiana #francescogiuffre #behappy #lovelife #choosejoy #followyourheart #solocosebelle #igersitalia #photographyeveryday #ig_shutterbugs #photographer

Keepin’ It Simple✨ - Just using up what I have on hand in the fridge and taking it easy today😌. - I can feel the result of having more carbs than usual, but I’ve been hydrating all day so I’m starting to feel like myself again. Feeling this exact way helps me realize that what I consumed yesterday was obviously not something my body thrives off of, and it helps to give me even more reason to eliminate them as much as possible. - Hope you all enjoyed yourself yesterday! And if you decided to consume more carbs than usual, remember that it’s time to get back into the swing of things and to not let one or two days totally defer you from your goals💪🏽☺️! - Happy Friday☀️ Love ya❣️ Xoxo💋 ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ ⋆ #myweightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthyfats #healthiswealth #choosehappiness #choosejoy #ketoweightloss #ketodiet #ketolifestyle #ketofriendly #ketoforbeginners #iloveketo #ketogirl #ketogenicdiet #ketofam #ketones #ketonesforfuel #ketorecipes #ketoadapted #ketosis #hydrate #sariavshealth

The rain’s coming 🌧 But I also thought this was a good representation of how we can approach our day. We decide if it’s going to be full of ☀️ or darkness. I subbed today. The disrespect I’m shown as a Substitute Teacher can cause me to easily choose dark and cloudy moods. However, I chose to see these opportunities to speak joy into these kids lives. I chose to be light. Have a blessed day! #Sunshine #Rain #Clouds #Light #Darkness #ChooseJoy “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the JOY that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews‬ ‭12:1-2)

Let’s see if I can make it through this without crying. If you’ve been following my Stories, you’ll know that I left town on Wednesday. I mentioned that this isn’t a fun trip, but I followed that up with images of cute dogs and a gorgeous view of Lake Michigan. What I didn’t show was a day spent at the hospital as I visit people I love dearly, one of whom is in ICU and may not get better. This would actually be a great segue into “Instagram is curated,” but not today. Yesterday was a hard day. It was filled with this view, that brought some peace. It was filled with cute dogs, who brought some comfort. It was also filled with a lot of anxiety and tension and sadness. We ended the day in a group and our conversation was filled with tears as we talked about what’s happening right now and how we feel. And then the tears turned to laughter as we reminisced about the past and talked about dogs. It brought to mind that quote by the wise Albus Dumbledore: “Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” The day I left, a friend and I were chatting and he said, “Your heart must be aching.” And it is. I wouldn’t necessarily describe anything I’ve felt as happiness, but yesterday I was reminded (because I’ve always known this, sometimes it’s just harder to remember) that the heartache and sadness can coexist with easier moments, too. I can enjoy this view and accept the peace that it brings as I wonder what the outcome of this will be. I can feel the heaviness that I might not see this person again and accept the comfort that these dogs bring me. I can band together with people that I love to live through a rough day, but also enjoy the good moments that we share in the midst of it. Laughter can accompany tears. And when I live through days like today, I wonder if it’s exactly what we need in order to get through them.

When I (JP) was living in Thailand and Vietnam I was swimming everyday. As I returned to the UK I got out of the habit. Swimming is great because you have to focus on your breath. If you don't sync your breath with your movements you don't get very far. This video was taken in Montenegro in November. The water was very cold but not as cold as my outdoor swims over Christmas! The scenery is perfect. There's a stillness and a clarity to being one in the ocean with nature. Do you love swimming? Do you want help getting started? Do you want help getting your life on track? * * * * #destinationgratitude #feelgoodfriday #fridayfun #fridayfavorites #friyay #mindfulliving #meditation #happy #healthyliving #liveauthentic #selflove #travel #lifestylegoals #dailyinspirations #lifestylechoices #choosejoy #mindsetmatters #healthyhabits #gratitudeeveryday #gratitudeattitude #positivevibes #positivelife #peace #freethinkers #selfimprovement #letsgoplaces #exploretocreate #wanderluster #digitalnomadlifestyle #montenegro

Yesterday (Valentine’s Day) and today (the end of my work week) made me realize how much I enjoy celebrating. I think love (God’s love, romantic love, kids, friends...) should be celebrated. It’s beautiful! And I also like celebrating achievements- even seemingly small ones like successfully finishing my work week. Celebrating big and small victories is fun. If you have anything you’re celebrating let me know- I’d love to cheer you on ☺️💗 . . . . #celebratevictories #celebratesmallvictories #choosejoy #encouragement #simplepleasures #positivity #womenencouragingwomen #faithlife #love #happyfriday

We shared yesterday about our kitchen dancing. 💃🏽 It’s really a thing, you guys. Each morning or after dinner sometimes we turn on a playlist and bust some moves in our kitchen together. Here’s what we mean, if you can hang in there through the last video: This is our song, Silly Love Songs... we’ve been singing it to our babies since our first was born. We love every bit of this time and hope it’s one for the wedding dance floor books for each of them, Lord willing!! I know we’ll look back at this in a year and feel emotional over how they’ve grown. Tell us how to make time stop just for a little bit, and we’d give you the stars if we could. 🌟 [swipe left]

We move forward with forgiveness,⁣ understanding, acceptance and love.⁣ ⁣ Instead of wasting your time on anger and resentments, invest your energy on love and contentment.⁣ ⁣ Healing is hard enough and anger is heavy. LET IT GO.⁣ ⁣ I remember when a friend told me something must be wrong with me. He said, “You should be angry. Something is wrong with you. People are going to think you are weird because you aren’t angry at that man that hit you with the SUV.” ⁣ ⁣ Well then call me a weirdo! ⁣ ⁣ Because being angry wouldn’t have changed a thing for me in the hospital when I was having surgery after surgery (34 surgeries in total, but whose counting😉)⁣ ⁣ I needed to heal. I needed to focus all my energy on getting better and moving forward. Angry is heavy and all I wanted to do was walk again. I certainly didn’t need anger weighing me down. ⁣ ⁣ We are human and we all get justifiably angry⁣ sometimes, but your growth comes with forgiveness . The key to happiness is learning to let go so you can move forward. ⁣ ⁣ Sending good vibes for a great weekend ahead!⁣ Please share this with someone who needs to hear it! ⁣ #strongertogether #loveistheanswer #letgo @malibuwestmedia

1. I got a good report and many people are asking what steps I have taken to allow my body to start healing. There have been many so here is the first post. First was nutrition. Your body will only be as good as the building blocks you provide it for its use and repair. Crappy food leads to crappy health. It may take years to get there and it may take years to comeback. Eat more vegetables and a variety of vegetables. Juice them, blend them, eat them raw and cooked. So what does that look like? Please note that I don’t have all these options available all the time. I pick 1-2 options in each meal category each week and then add a few items to vary it. 😊 BREAKFAST- it was usually fresh juice and something else. ⁃ Carrot, ginger, green apple juice - fresh, not pasteurized. 16-40 oz a day consumed throughout the day. ⁃ Oatmeal with several of the following: chai seeds, hemp seeds, nuts, unsweetened coconut flakes, blueberries, banana, strawberries, cinnamon and a pinch of salt and of course water. ⁃ Green smoothie which may include several of the following. I try to limit fruit to 1-2 servings to keep the sugar content down and get 3-5 servings of veggies. Spinach, avocado, cucumber, fennel, nuts, coconut milk (canned), green apple, mango (frozen), ginger, lemon or lime. ⁃ I even ate leftover roasted veggies with a poached fresh farm egg on top occasionally. ⁃ Chia seed pudding. Thanks @cleanslatecleanse 😊 LUNCH - especially in warm weather, this was the best time to get raw veggies in since I pack my lunch to work and don’t have access to my fridge. ⁃ salads with beans, seeds or nuts and all sorts of veggies. Salad item examples include: mixed greens, spinach, romaine, kale, tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, radishes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, green onions, olives, sunflower seeds, pepitas, almonds, beans, celery, bell pepper, sprouted beans, snow peas, etc. ⁃ Veggie curries (Thanks @cleanslatecleanse and @minimalistbaker ) ⁃ Leftovers from a veggie based dinner. ⁃ Veggie hummus wraps . @jbgorganic #healthadvocate #beatcancer #healingnaturally #eatingforacure #eatinglikeyourlifedependsonit #healthychoices #healingwithfood #plantbased

Here’s my Friday: . My hair didn’t do what it was supposed to this morning and the back ended up crazy all morning without me realizing it. So now, headscarf. 👳🏻‍♀️ . The bus for my elementary kiddos was super late. I had to take them to school so they wouldn’t be late. Which meant my “put on my face” time was relegated to the car using the sunshade mirror at red lights. 🚌 . I had a foot-in-mouth moment at work trying to be funny this morning and made everyone present uncomfortable. 🤦🏼‍♀️ . I had to take my oldest to a doctor’s appointment this afternoon and I’m trying to smooth some things out and figure out how to parent my first born though stages we’ve never gone through and ended up raising my voice when I didn’t want or mean to. 🙇🏼‍♀️ . I sat on my bed for what was supposed to be a few minutes to look through a catalog and fell asleep for an hour. Got nothing done I wanted to get done during that hour.😴 . Why am I sharing my screw-ups? Because I’m human. Stupid, bad stuff happens. I have two choices: give up and wallow or deal with it and move on. When I choose the second option, it’s always a good day no matter what’s happened.💁🏼‍♀️ . Having a not-so-FriYAY? Me too. Let choose that second option together from now on? ❤️ . PS I’m holding my hand to my face because there’s a giant dry patch on my chin that even the best foundation won’t cover without making me look like I have leprosy. 😏🙄 But luckily you can still see the remnants of a burst pimple on the other side of my chin so 🤷🏼‍♀️ . #selflove #selfcare #choosekindness #choosehappiness #choosejoy #andeatpizza

What’s your favorite bread recipe? Tried making lemon blueberry bread last week but wasn’t in love with it.

•J•O•Y• 13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ROMANS 15:13 We were a little stir crazy this afternoon. Our town has a huge play fort. I decided it was worth the mud risk to get some fresh air. Thankfully the wood chips did their job and it was plenty dry. She LOVED all of the different wiggly Bridges and the swings are clearly her favorite. Her smiles and giggles are absolutely infectious. I love watching her explore and learn about the world around her. We can't wait until the weather has truly broken for spring. 🌷 #eakadventures16 #athenaelizabeth #sweetlife #sweetmemories #joy #baby #babylove #playtime #joy #choosejoy #sunshine #wiggle #swings #momlife #mom

As I Began To Love Myself by Charlie Chaplin As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”. As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”. As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”. As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”. As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”. As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”. As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”. As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”. As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”. We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!

"Listen to the inner light; It will guide you. Listen to the inner Peace; It will feed you. Listen to the inner Love; It will transform you, It will divinise you, It will immortalise you." ⠀⠀ ~ Sri Chinmoy ⠀⠀ I love this quote. The day after Valentine’s Day it reminds me that every relationship starts within me. In order for me to have loving relationships with others, I must first create and cultivate a loving relationship with myself. ⠀⠀ Sometimes that means appreciating exactly where I am and knowing I am exactly where I need to be. ⠀⠀

Omg, some days are just busier than others! I don’t know why I do this, but I always overcommit to too many things in one day. Here I am in this pic, trying squeeze in baking a cake before running out to work for our dinner with friends later. Maybe I get bit by the Wonder Woman bug. I don’t know. Then, I realized I need to schedule some content in for the IG #10daysofvlogs with @rosegold.diary challenge that started today Oh boy!! 😆 Well, wish me luck! Do you find yourself over-committing?
